Saturday’s powerful wind gusts revealed some choice ghost signage at 88 Delancey, between Orchard and Ludlow.  Half of the metal fixture was ripped completely clear from its housing, landing on the sidewalk.  Police units and a sanitation team were swiftly mobilized for the cleanup effort.  The other half is safe and sound for now, but could be pulled down as well; it continued to rattle.

In December 2008, after years hanging above the storefront, mother nature also brought down the purple Just Ask banner.  The fallen comrade brought to light the old-school yellow signage of former tenant Vicmarr Electronics.   Now, it seems that the original Vicmarr marquee is showing itself again.  Well, at least half of it.
